Overview of the Sunfire General

The Drive Medical Sunfire General is a great blend of function and comfort. The 400 pound weight capacity along with its affordable price makes it a great choice. The 13-inch rear tires provides great traction and stability for outdoor use. The 10-inch casters won’t get caught up on small obstacles. Plus all four wheels are flat free, so you don’t have to worry about getting stranded.

What Makes This Different
The Sunfire General is also a very comfortable power chair. It comes with a great captain's seat with a 45º reclining back, a no-gap pillow headrest and angle/width/height adjustable armrests. It also gives you a soft ride due to the tension-adjustable suspension. The footplate is also height and angle adjustable. All of these adjustable features allow you to tailor this chair for optimal comfort.

Why We Like It
We like the standard features of the Sunfire General, they provide a smooth and safe ride all for a great price. The standard swivel captain's seat is also great for transferring in and out of your chair.

What You Need to Know When Ordering
Fully charge your batteries upon arrival. It typically takes 8-14 hours for the batteries to reach a full charge. Be sure to charge your batteries after each use. Also, the Sunfire General charger is on the rear of the power chair, you need to be mobile or have assistance in order to plug in the charger. This chair also comes with a one year in-home service contract that pays for a technician to come to your home for the first year of ownership.

Measuring Guide

Seat Depth1
Measure from the most posterior point of the body to the inside of the knee, minus at least two inches. Some prefer more leg overhang to make room for their hand when lifting their leg.

Back Height2
Measured from the seat base to the top of the chair back. Power wheelchair riders need upper back support, particularly for the moment of initial acceleration.

Hanger Angle3
Determines how far the toes extend away from the body, measured from the horizontal. A tighter angle allows the electric power wheelchair to turn around in less space. Depends in part on ability of the knee to bend towards the perpendicular.

Seat Width4
Determined by the widest point of the body from knee to hip, plus an inch to ensure room to move. Consider bulk of clothing, particularly a heavy winter coat, if relevant.

Front Seat to Floor5
Measure the leg from the back of the knee to the sole of the foot. Then subtract the thickness of the cushion when it is compressed. Next, add a minimum of two inches for footrest clearance. Electric power wheelchairs are almost never foot-propelled by the user - so excluding the additional two inch footrest height for propelling is very rare.
